A Peek into the Life of an Arborist
An arborist is someone that has ideally gone to school for arboriculture as well as a professional certification from the International Society of Arboriculture or ISA. the ISA is a well-respected organization among arborists and if a certification is obtained from this organization, the arborist is qualified to receive increased pay.
Essentially, though, an arborist is someone that takes care of the health and vitality of trees and shrubs commercially and residentially. He is someone that can perform a multitude of services to your trees and shrubs.
Some of these services include:
- Trimming, pruning, and thinning
- Tree planting
- Tree removal
- Stump removal
- Tree treatments
- Fire risk mitigation
No matter what service you need to be performed, when it comes to the beauty, health, and safety of any tree or shrub, an arborist is the one you need to call.
Why Hiring an Arborist Is The Right Thing to Do
You may not understand just how dangerous a scenario you are in with a tree until an arborist is hired. It doesn’t take much for a tree to become an emergency because they are so heavy. If a tree is planted close to electrical wire, it is important to keep the limbs from growing around the wire. The same is said for trees growing close to the home to keep them from growing into the gutters.
Tree growing close to the home can cause other problems as well, though. They become even more dangerous during a severe thunderstorm. If one falls on your home it will inevitably cause expensive damage and could potentially hurt people within the home. Not to mention the damage that can be caused below ground. Tree roots can grow into your plumbing system and cause extensive damage to your plumbing.
If you notice things like:
- Broken limbs
- Loose limbs
- Damage to the trunk
- The tree is leaning
- Roots are exposed
You will want to call an arborist right away, as these are tree emergencies. The arborist will safely and efficiently fix the problem.
Arborist Vs. Landscaper
Landscapers provide a great service for those in need of any de-weeding, mulching, irrigation, or lawn installation and maintenance. However, if your trees need maintenance, you call an arborist. The difference between the two professions is actually rather vast. The two professions don’t have much in common at all.
An arborist won’t do you mulching or weeding, but they are certified to know how to read the trees and shrubs on your property. If a tree is unhealthy and in a dangerous condition, an arborist will be able to tell you exactly what’s wrong with it and how to fix it. Not only that, but they will provide the service to do so.
